We have season passes here. It's a very nice place to go with the family. It is great to have it so close to our house. Good family times.

I normally take my family to this water park at least once a year. It has a nice variety of rides for all ages. A spray area and small slides for toddlers in addition to large slides for adults. The best part is the wave pool. Park has life guards stationed threw out the park. Staff are friendly and helpful.... More

We liked Venture River because of the size of the park and the fact that it was not crowded. We were able to let our older kids, ages 9 and 11, go off on their own some and still be able to find them if we needed them. Slides were not busy at all, which is good and bad since... More

The park itself is just ok. The rides are old & the tubes weigh a ton and must be packed up flights of stairs. It's ungodly expensive before 3 pm and you can't bring in anything to eat or drink, which means after shelling out around $70 for a family of 4 just to walk in, you then have to... More

Venture River is a nice clean waterpark with slides to suit all ages and senses of adventure as well as a lazy river, wave pool and cyclone pool. Because it is in a rural area the lines are not long when compared to water parks in bigger cities and those attached to amusement parks. It is well maintained and the... More

We stayed at the Buzzard Rock Resort located in nearby Kuttawa, KY and planned to visit this waterpark. We spent the day out on Lake Barkley fishing and pleasure boating on the Pontoon, and then visited this waterpark at 3pm two days during our weeklong visit. The waterpark has a half price deal that starts 3 hours before closing. My... More

If you don't like to swim in lake water this is the place for you. The wave pool is very big and you can grab you a raft and just ride out the day on wave after wave. My one complaint is the rafts I don't like them. The only kind they have is like a inner tube. I'm a... More

I buy my grandchildren season passes every year, we love it the staff are always nice and there's plenty of slides. It would be great if they had some type of conveyer system for the large tubes, they are very hard to handle

We have 2 boys and liked that there are a lot of different slides and other water activities to keep them having fun all day! We didn't like how you had to carry the really heavy rafts for The Cliffhanger and Fumbi up the hill. The kids needed us to do it.
